Anyone have a pigtail for a 98-00 x70 headlamp they're not using? 

Or parting a vehicle with one?  

 

I'm going to etch my ABM projector lense, and start offering it as a service (if anyones interested here), want to make sure the light output isnt effected or if it is, by how much.

I’m 99% I’ve got one at home. Ping me during the week to remind me to check. If I do, I’ll happily mail it to you no charge

Your driving an outback now? Mine is great on regular tires. And when the snow tires are on it handles like it’s on rails.

we bought the outback in 2016 for my wife.  I still had the company car.

 

they took away our company cars and we got her a 2018 4runner and I took over the outback for work.

 

I bought an Ascent a couple weeks ago and moved the outback to a kids car.

 

I'm about to order another car for wifey today I hope.  that was our 4th 4runner and we are just not happy with it.

Makes sense. We’ve got a 2017 outback and it’s been great. Wife’s still rocking her 08 Prius at 300,000 miles now. Though she’s taken the outback a lot this winter for the heated seat and heated wheel. 
 

too bad they took away the company car. 
 

what are you ordering to replace the 4Runner?

The preorder is supposed to start tomorrow, take ownership in NOV probably.   they say sooner but expect delays.

AAA is dropping me as of April 2022 due to excessive use.   

Apparently the 5 calls I made within the last year were an "excessive use" of their services... 

 

Lets break it down. 

1 Call was to change / update my last name. 

2 Calls were for a Tow. 

1 Call was to cancel a Tow because the wait time went from 2 hours to 8 hours and was able to source and replace the CEM? PEM? on the side of the road. 

1 Call was to find a hotel along our drive while heading to the smokies. 

 

Needless to say I'm either going to re-enroll in the wife's name or just go with Good Sam / Better World.  

Anyone use either one of those or have a better recommendation?   I'm really just after the Towing service should I need it on the S70 while out of town, AAA discounts dried up years ago I feel.

I have AAA, but I have only ever called them for tows.  I have never used a discount or anything else with them.  At most I have towed twice in the same year with them.

Same, I maybe used them twice in 2018 and then GEICO gave me free roadside assistance and a discount when I started getting quotes from other companies in December.  AAA is a national service but work as local/regional chapters so it could just be your regional office that hates you, maybe try calling the corporate end 🤷🏼‍♂️

wow.  Never heard of them dropping anyone.  I'd be jacked.

 

Wife used them twice last year for jumps.  No Tows.  I have it for entire family.

 

I use hotel discount hundreds of times a year.  If I ever lost it, I'd just sign up for AARP.( I still haven't lol)

Yeah apparently its in their terms 4 service calls a year I was shocked.  And they determine service as any of their services not just towing.

I tried, I may give it another go this week and see if I can get a hold of someone else, I get that i've definitely gotten my money out of the top teir of their offerings but now im dailying a new vehicle so they're going to make it back on me over the next few years.  It's the peace of mind that im losing more than the service now.

Honestly how is AARP?   They allow "under age" members as well and ive been tempted a few times lol.  

I'm actually finding it more common than I realized, even the owner of my company apparently got dropped by them for the same reason because he had to have his Jeep towed a few times last year.  
He now has Better World Club.
